Does anyone know if there is a way to take flat, straight on elevations?  We would like to create elevations that we can tag and place into the CD's.

What you are wanting is 'parallel projection'

Hi Adorin, it is currently not possible to create isometric/orthographic camera views in Lumion.

Your only option is to fake it by moving the camera far away from the model and cranking up the focal length to 300mm, then add a "Camera Clip Planes" effect and adjust the "Near plane" slider.

The upcoming animation plugin will offer a new effect that allows you to create animated cross sections though, but as far as I know, there is no orthographic camera function to accompany it.
